Nat Idle, a San Francisco writer with a medical degree, narrowly survives an explosion in an Internet café after a stranger hands him a note warning him to exit immediately. The handwriting on the note belongs to his deceased girlfriend, a Silicon Valley venture capitalist whom he has obsessively been mourning.
So begins HOOKED, a pop thriller for the Digital Age, narrated with the force and the pace of an intimate email dispatch you can't stop reading. Each chapter of this novel will keep listeners hooked as Nat Idle searches for the love of his life in the midst of manipulation and conspiracy.
Just as previous generations were influenced by movies, today we are becoming hooked on Internet technology, which is changing the way we read, think, and dream. HOOKED vividly illustrates how technology is turning us into a national of addicts. It will make you rethink your relationship with your computer and your mobile phone.

"If Michael Crichton and John Grisham decided to collaborate on a novel set in Silicon Valley, they might come up with a thriller as cutting-edge and suspenseful as Hooked. With this highly addictive debut, Matt Richtel could become the bard of the iPod generation."
-Rupert Holmes, Edgar Award-winning author
"Hooked is not only an exciting thriller but also a remarkably moving and human story, and a very funny novel as well. Matt Richtel has written a very smart and engaging page-turner about the chaos of our present moment and the timeless qualities that make us human."
-David Liss, Edgar Award-winning author of A Conspiracy of Paper
"Matt Richtel is a hell of a talent. After I read Hooked, I shot my computer."
